Barbeque and beverages are also available for purchase. Don't forget to bring your flashlight, and money for food, beverages and the events you are interested in (all-inclusive wristbands are $12.00 for youth 17 and under, $6.00 for 18 and over). Parents, siblings and friends are welcome to attend as well - the more the merrier! If you plan to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we'll have an idea who and how many will be joining us. PARENTS - PLEASE NOTE - this is a social gathering and not a chaperoned event. Mapleside Farms is located at 294 Pearl Road in Brunswick.
